nothing and start. when mike allen and i wrote "a patriot's history of the united states" in 2004, we identified three major elements that made up americanism. nevertheless, we never really provided a definition of american exceptionalism, and doing our revisions over time we kind of corrective that for the next addition that we hope will be out next year. even in 2004, it seemed a natural progression to move toward a history of the world, especially the modern world. it's the modern world that we see the truthfulness of american liberty and prosperity on display. and under attack. through an amazon book review of "a patriot's history of the united states" i met dave doherty, an arkansas businessman historian, computer expert from evening shade, yes, there is an evening shade, arkansas. we first begin a top to bottom review of any -- and then over time i discovered he's a wonderful co-author and so asked him to help me with "a patriot's history of the modern world." he proved especially good in areas where i was week or and as a former intelligence officer in the army, he brought a ne

. mike allen moderates the discussion. see that live at 10:00 a.m. eastern on c-span 3. house democrats filed a discharge petition to force a house vote to extend the bush era tax cuts for middle-class families. the bill has already passed in the senate. next, we hear from nancy pelosi. the course of the election the president made it very clear that he was courting the extension of the middle class tax cut and that everyone, 100% of the american people, would benefit from it. 100% of taxpayers, small businesses, wage earners, and the rest. the republicans are saying that rather than passing that they want to hold it hostage to giving an additional tax cut to people making over $250,000 a year. that's not negotiating. that's hostage taking. so today on the floor of the house the democrats have proposed a discharge petition which if it receives 218 signatures, that's only a couple dozen republicans joining the democrats, would automatically come to the floor and i predict would receive the overwhelming support of the house of representatives. the miles per hour people want us t

joins us for a look back at those who passed. >>> up next, mike allen with the "politico playbook." first is dylan drier tracking the winter storm. >> this storm is a big one. it affected the whole eastern third of the country for several days right through that all-important holiday for travelers. that certainly did wreak havoc on the airports. we ended up with more than a foot of snow in some areas, especially back into ohio, pennsylvania and new york state. granby, connecticut, picked up six inches before it changed over to rain. we saw winds gusting up near hurricane-force strength in brick, new jersey. 74-mile-per-hour wind gusts. most of the eastern seaboard did see gusts in excess of 50 miles per hour. this storm is still lingering across northern new england where winter storm warnings and advisories are still in effect. heaviest of the snow, though, is where they want it, up across the ski resorts through northern new york, up into vermont, new hampshire and eventually maine as well. it's the extreme northern tier of the country that could end up with more than two feet o

, because they heard that i was writing the book. they saw mike allen wrote a piece about it in politico's playbook and. >> a young captain which set up the outpost, he wanted me to write about, staff sergeant jerod monty who had been killed, won the medal of honor posthumously and write about his brothers and lieutenant dave roller, he wanted me to write about his commander who had been killed and the fact they had some success there is in that valley, but the outpost wasn't all meaningless and for nought, they had actually done some things, so it became, as these troops became invested in the projects, it became a much larger and much more comprehensive study and i think, hopefully a better book because it is a narrative. >> and what is the role of stan crystal, of stan mcchrystal, the former commander of troops in afghanistan who later had to leave? >> stan mcchrystal makes a decision to lay the closure of the outpost. the men who come in, colonel randy george and lieutenant colonel brad brown they come in to take control of this area of operations which includes combat outpo

interview that norquist did with politico's mike allen. >> this president is not going to extend. he knows that he loses his leverage that way. >> okay, well, the republicans also have other leverage: continuing resolutions on spending and the debt ceiling increase. they can give him debt ceiling increases once a month. they can have him on a rather short leash, on a small, you know, "here's your allowance, come back next month if you've behaved"-- >> okay, okay, wait. you're proposing that the debt ceiling be increased month-- >> month -- >> -- by month? >> -- monthly. monthly, if he's good. weekly, if he's not. >> it does seem apparent that norquist is prepared to bring the government down if he has to, if he doesn't get his way. >> yeah, i don't know why anybody's paying any attention to him. you know, he doesn't hold any public office, he's a self-declared leader who goes around saying, you know, "this is what i want you to do." but where does he get his strength? where does he get the force that makes people pay attention to him? >> good question. >> it's the fact that the people who

was the sign of this nomination's downward trajectory. after watching on tv, mike allen wrote he received an immediate e-mail from an astute republican official saying, pass the jam, he's toast. so is it game over for hagel? the white house certainly seemed to be backtracking this weekend. a senior official told the national journal on sunday it was fair to say obama's considering candidates other than hagel for defense secretary, so will republicans get their way again? as democrats are left scratching their heads about the possibility of the president getting rolled on a second nomination, the question for them is if hagel is really toast, is obama milk toast? i'm going right to joy reid, you don't like milk toast leadership, i don't know where you stand on toast. >> it's carbohydrate-laden, so i'm against it. >> it's the holidays. >> that's true. >> people are royally upset. hagel said objectionable things, no one, not even his people, are defending that. on the other hand, as i said, he would be, by the standards of pentagon leadership, which is its own metric, he would be a

white house. joining me now is politico's mike allen, chief white house correspondent. we are stalemated. there is a personal relationship between the president and boehner, but the sense that i'm getting from the white house in the last 24 hours is they were very surprised by plan b, very disappointed, and you hear both sides saying that the other hasn't given -- the white house feels that the president has put a lot on the table. >> he has, and the white house yesterday brought the top business leaders in the country into the white house. secretary geithner and others to warn them, basically to scare them that the cliff is coming. to tell them that things have gone backwards in the last 24 hours. what we see here is speaker boehner saying this isn't on us. we're trying. both sides are going to say that they're trying because you talk to people up there. they're increasingly convinced on both sides there's going to be no deal. i can tell you -- excuse me -- in the white house they're extremely concerned about what the economic and market reaction to that. it may be that a dea

again up next, mike allen with the political playbook. here's dylan dryer with a check on the forecast. >> we're talking about more snow in the northeast. this time around this is not a big storm, maybe a few inches. winter storm advisories are posted from northern arkansas right through tennessee and up into the mid-atlantic region. where is the storm right now? through louisiana and arkansas bringing mostly rain to the area. as it moves eastward it will wrap into colder air. the bulk of the storm is it staying offshore. it looks like rain along the immediate coastline from cape cod, massachusetts down into southern new jersey. that dark shade of purple is where we could see 3 to 5 inches. you you go inland further away from the storm and it looks like 1 to 3 inch. just enough to make it slippery for the weekend. today looks real nice across the northeast. we'll dry it out and look for sunshine and a little chilly but it's the end sdechl after all. that's your latest forecast. you're watching "morning joe" brewed by starbucks. this family used capital one venture miles to come home fo
